[dropcap]I[/dropcap]It is that time of year again! The Village of Richmond Holiday House & Business Tour, a charitable event in support of The Richmond Food Bank scheduled for Nov. 30th, is gearing up for another season. All ticket sales for this self-driven tour of Holiday Homes go towards support of the Richmond Food Bank. Tickets are $25 each. The Village of Richmond Holiday House Business tour is brought to you by Sonya Kinkade Design and is sponsored by businesses in the Village of Richmond and surrounding areas.
Started in Dec 2017 by Sonya Kinkade, six homes and three business stops were featured with lunch and entertainment at Danby’s Roadhouse and shopping at the Village Shoppe and Ritchies Feed and Seed.
In the first two years, the tour raised over $7,000.00 for the food bank and collected toys for local children in need.
Sonya Kinkade of Sonya Kinkade Design donates her time to organize the tour and usually decorates 3-4 houses, the remainder decorated by the homeowners themselves.
The tour reaches out to the business in and around Richmond to sponsor this event. The sponsorship money goes toward the decorating of the homes as well as print costs. The companies who sponsor homes receive publicity online as well as on a sign at one of the houses during the tour.
This year the tour date will be on Saturday, November 30th from 10-4. Tickets can be purchased online at eventbrite.ca under the name The Village of Richmond Holiday House & Business Tour or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org

The tour is always looking for houses in Richmond and outside of Richmond to feature and encourages people to reach out to them if they would like to nominate a home.
Sponsors are always welcome and more are being sought. Without the generous support of business sponsors the tour could not happen. If your company would like to help with this charity event and become a sponsor just email Sonya at email@example.com there are four different sponsorship packages she can suggest.
